"It's terrible," said Bob,
Boehner. "We object to the
destruction of a" heritage of
the city of Lincoln," added
Gary Harley.
These comments were
made by two University stu
dents participating yesterday
in a protest demonstration in
front of city hall.
According to the marchers,
the city council has voted to
rip out the lawn and trees on
the 10th and "0" street cor
ner of the City Hall in order
to permit the construction of
14 pafting places on that
"All the people of Lincoln
can enjoy frees," said one of
the students (most of whom
were architecture students
AWOL from lab), "but it's not
fair when only 14 individuals
gain from something like
"It's interesting to note,"
added Harley," that people
spend so much money on con
crete pots and plastic flowers
in their subconscious desire to
return to nature. This corner
is one of the few natural
green spots left in the city."
"It's a crime to make a
concrete jungle out of Lin
coin," commented Dick Neu
man. "We are surprised to
see that several of the Lincoln
businessmen in this area
haven't voiced their opposition
to this atrocity. Men like
Nathan Gold who own prop
erty around here ought to be
interested in seeing something
like this lawn kept here," said
The students marched
around the area shouting slo
gans and waving their signs
until the rush hour of 5 p.m.
so that many 'people would
know the activities of their
city council. "We're going to
plant all these signs before
we leave," stated Larry Er
vine. Teachers College

Great Britain's job in con
nection with the Common
Market is to see which way
history is going and .get
around in front of it, ac
cording to Colin Jackson.
Jackson spoke to an au
dience of University stu
dents at Love Library yes

expressed his views on
why Britain should be a
member of the Common
For both economic and
political reasons the com
mon market affects "the
United Kingdom, United
States, Russia and Red Chi
na," he said.
"I believe England should
join the Common Market.
The sooner the better," he
said, "even though Presi
dent De Gaulle of France
has temporarily frustrated'
these hopes."
Jackson listed two eco
nomic and two political rea
sons why Britain should be
a part of the European
trade group.
"England must trade to
live," he said. It is the big
gest importer of food and
it must, then, also export.
And with England as a part
of the Common Market,

He said that it would des

Susie Christensen said that
graduate students were not in
terested in student govern
ment and they were not a
close group.
Dennis Christie pointed out
that the Council would never
know if graduate students
wanted representation unless
they were given a chance.
He also said that anew
graduate organization has
been formed that meets week

Steve Honey said that if
there was a larger group
Europe would become a
real world power, he said.
Secondly, in order to suc
ceed there must be n e w
inventions, new ideas, mod

resource supplies and re
search teams, Jackson ex
plained. England has been good in
Inventions, but poor in their
follow through, he contin
ued. With England in t h e
Common Market there
would be a larger home
base for contribution, he
Further, there are those .
who want to make the or
ganization a block against
East Europe. If Britain
joins it would be possible
to later bring in countries
such as Switzerland and
Sweden, which are neutral,
and bridge the gap 'between
the East and West, he said.
The Common Market should
make peace, he added.
Instead, the Inner Six
might use its forces for the
accentuation of the Cold
War rather than its diminu
ation, he said.
The political reason
which might be the most
important in the end, ac
cording to Jackson, is the
danger of the Inner Six be
coming a wealthy, inner-
looking part of the world.
Right now, he said, the
rich are getting richer and
the poor are getting poorer.

present. Only . one stu
dent from Pharmacy and one
from Dental College have
picked up applications for fil
ing in the spring election.
Married students might al
so be interested in serving
on the Council to discuss their
problems, he said.
The Council discussed and
defeated three other repre
sentation plans.
Plan four included the fol
lowing changes: Graduate,

"Britain's association (in
the Common Market) would
turn Europe outwards," he
said. It could alleviate the
disparity between the haves
and have-nots of the globe,
he continued.
"We are terribly small in
the Universe, but on earth
are extremely .far from
each other, Jackson ex
plained. Great Britain has the
ability to stop this trend,
he continued. The Inner Six
has a bad record with their
There is today a growing
economic imperialism re

ialism, Great Britain could
halt the world's fear of the
Inner Six, he said.
Referring to President De
Gaulle, who early this year
blocked Great Britain's at
tempt to join the Common
Market, Jackson said, "He
has ability and conceit."
He explained De Gaulle's
action with reasons several
of which he said he could
understand if he were a
Frenchman, but s t r i c 1 1 y
condemned the delay in the
announcement from the
summer of 1961 to January
of this year.

by having one representative
for every 300 students instead
of every 500 students.
In other business, the Coun
cil acted on several proposed
amendments to the constitu
tion. It defeated an amend
ment proposed by Bill Dunk
lau to allow juniors to run
for Council positions.
Another amendment pro
posed by Dunklau allow

seniors to hold offices and
having the election by the
newly elected Council was al
so defeated.

he said.
In effect Be Gaulle says
"If you want your club you
can have it, but keep out
of ours," explained J a c k
son. Part of this stems from
the fact that he was a refu
gee in Great Britain during
1940-41 and was probably
reminded of it at the time,
Jackson said. De Gaulle
seems to be anti-British and
anti-American, he added.
Other reasons that De
Gaulle has for blocking
Britain's entry is that he
does not want the Common
wealth to be included and
that if Britain joined De
Gaulle is afraid she would

Jackson also discounted
De Gaulle's proposition that
Great Britain wanted in the
Common Market only for
the economic benefits it
would gain.

Pi Rho, in Ayres' terminol

Greek Week convocation.

"familiar family ring to it,"
he said, "but with De Gaulle
it has a particular poison
to it."
Jackson contended that
De Gaulle would never
achieve a united Germany
and a United States of Eur
ope. But, with Britain as
a member of the Common
Market an agreement with
the United States could be
attained and Soviet Pre
mier Khrushchev would
have to withdraw his state

have to join then, Jackson
He expressed his opinion
that De Gaulle's single op
position would not keep
Britain out. There will soon

without Adenauer's extreme
devotion to the ideal of a

that what the United States
says is not anti-French, but
is pro-West," Jackson add
ed. Then, with Great Brit

Atlantic, we could leave

China to fight between

powerful friends, "over half
of the 36 presidents of the
United States were fraternity
men," he said. One often
hears that fraternities are not
wanted on college campuses,
but according to the chancel
lor at the University of Kan
sas, "residence halls can
never take the place of fra
ternity houses."
Ayres outlined the creed
of the college fraternity as
1. We believe wholehearted
ly that the dignity of the in
dividual is enhanced and
strengthened by the appropri
ate behavior of the group
with which he is associated.
Likewise, we believe that only
through the acts of the in
dividual can the group be mo
tivated to achievement.
2. We believe civilization's
progress is made primarily
by the concerted efforts of
small groups working togeth
er for a common cause with
in the broad framework of a
larger body. Thus we relata
the American fraternity to
the academic community to
which it is attached.
3. We believe completely
that responsibility is para
mount to all our obligations.
Responsibility, in its several
phases to one's self, to
one's family, to one's asso
ciates, to one's organization,
to one's institution, to one's
nation, to one's God is the
keynote in the building of our
group's life.
4. We believe in the funda
mental freedoms, but that the
primary freedom is that of
individual choice without
which all other freedoms lose
their meaning,
5. We believe that positive,
sound leadership based on the
principle of selfless service is
not only our greatest objec
tive but also our most impor
tant product.
6. We believe in the total es
sential of a deep and abiding
faith in the all-embracing
power of a supreme deity
giving our moral life and tem
poral existence continuous
meaning, purposeful direction
and spiritual attainment.
